Vacuums Contaminated Liquid, Pumps Out Clean Liquid
Press release date: October 26, 2009
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump which reduces the coolant flow, causing heat-related damage to the expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the sump with a Chip Trapper eliminates this problem, the lost production, and downtime.
Chip Trapper is compressed air powered and has no motors or impellers to clog or wear out. Safe operation is assured with a built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff valve that prevents spills or overfilling. The Chip Trapper comes complete with the stainless steel two-way pump assembly, directional flow valve, 55 gallon drum, lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 10' vacuum hose, 20' compressed air hose, chip wand, (2) filter bags and a drum dolly. An optional Spill Recovery Kit is available. Price is $1,275. A demonstration can be viewed at http://www.exair.com/ctvideo.com.
